M_Sack (403) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2014

Mjollnir (391) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2010
UPDATED: APR 26, 2010 375mL bottle. Pours dark red to black without much of a head. Faint aroma of burnt malt and yeast extract. Tastes like a slightly burnt chocolate biscuit really. Light-medium bodied, soft carbonation with a lingering bitter and slightly astringent finish.

Shark_Pants (378) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2014
Pours cola colored with ruby highlights, large 2 finger frothy head. Aromas of leather, Vegemite, sweet toffee. The taste is similar but as others have mentioned, it has a metallic edge & lacks the creaminess of proper Guinness. Medium bodied. Not horrible but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DeliriumT (373) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2013
Pours black with white head. Aroma is harsh metallic hops with roasty chocolate and caramel hints. Flavour is overwhelmed by the poor hops which buries the more robust flavours which Guinness is known for. Do yourself a favour fellow Aussies, steer clear of the extra stout and go for the "draught" version in the can ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mattyhennessy (373) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUL 31, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2014 Pours jet black with a light tan head. Taste is very metallic and masks the chocolate and coffee flavours. The hops are not balanced. Little aroma present. Far thinner than the original irish version

KapitiCritique (369) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - AUG 15, 2011
Very big taste, bitter sourness due to the amount of iron from what I hear, on tap in Dublin it comes out like toast and milk

TedE (368) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2015
375ml bottle into pint glass. Bit disturbing to find a slightly skunked thing going on here, but there it is. It disappears to be replaced by a mild chocolate nose. Looks right, black as pitch with average tan coloured head. Quite thin body with a bit of zing on the tongue. Finish is astringent and vegetal, then raw coffee takes over. Finally a little touch of sweet chocolate arrives. Not recommended.

RafeAU (308) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2015
On tap at King O’Malleys in Canberra, not sure of the keg’s origin. nitro. subtle dark malt flavour, minimal roastiness. pretty average. I wonder if Guinness is better at the source.
